ORGANIZATION: KATIE JOHNSON FELLOWSHIP INC

The Berkshire Project is a creative and performing arts-based program supported by the Katie Johnson Fellowship, Inc. whose mission is to empower individuals of all abilities and follows a "nobody pays, nobody gets paid" motto. We are entirely funded by private donations, allowing us to offer the program to participants free of charge with all lodging and meals included. Throughout the retreat, we will participate in community activities and workshops from local artists. We will join the community to enjoy live music, live theatre, visits with local artists, and more. The staffing model will be 1:1, with each participant paired with a support person for the entire retreat. We also will take all COVID-19 precautions as needed to ensure a safe environment.

We are specifically looking for individuals over the age of 21 who are adaptable, excited for new adventures, and have an interest in the creative and performing arts. If you would like to learn more about this program, please contact Lauren and Mara at theberkshireproject2020@gmail.com to arrange an in-person or video call meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!
